The book photographed next to a man for scale
Wine Grapes, the new and amazing tome by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding and José Vouillamoz has been adopted as our Bible, Talmud, Quran, Book of Mormon etc.
It will be used as the authoritative word in resolving deputes about synonyms, clones etc. No more arguments like:
“Brunello is an independent grape variety!”
“I believe that it’s actually Sangiovese.”
“How would you know? Do you know more than wine makers in Montalcino??!!!!”
